The Fall Season is upon us once again and with it brings fond memories of harvest festivals, apple picking, and cozying up to a fire with hot  mulled apple cider and a good book. We often think of fall as the time to don our favorite cozy sweater, or to slip into beloved leather boots. However we often forget about one of the most essential pieces to transition a look from summer to fall. Pants! Pants can completely upgrade a wardrobe to keep your summer fashion sense from fizzling out in the upcoming colder months. Below are some obsession- worthy trousers and slacks sure to make your seasonal wardrobe worries FALL away ;).

Neutral plaids and menswear tweed were ALL OVER the runways for this fall season. Patterns like herringbone, glen plaid, and houndstooth dominated at Versace, Saint Laurant, Calvin Klein, and Prada. Incorporate this Saville Row inspired trend into your wardrobe with these effortlessly stylish Joseph Ribkoff Plaid Pants. The classic menswear inspired print has just the right touch of femininity because of a shimmery thread that's been woven into the original print.  Pair with black pumps and this Inge Christopher Black Woven Silk Clutch for a trendy look that easily transitions from day to night. Looking for a little color? Enhance the maroon undertones in the print by styling with this gorgeous plum necklace by Fairchild Baldwin.

We are usually inclined to think of our floral dresses and petal covered tops as perennials, pieces meant to hibernate in the fall and winter and bloom once again in springtime.  But before storing away your snowlillies and packing up your petunias in preperation for fall, be warned! Florals are BACK! But not in the way you'd expect. Fall florals have similar patterns to their spring and summer counterparts, but the coloration is much darker and more vampy, in shades like, wine, olive green, dark grey, and indigo. These stunning trousers by Amici are a perfect representation of this trend, and will already match with fall colors that you know and love. Pair with a stunning nude or silver jacket and a chunky necklace and you'll blossom no matter the temperature!

Bundle up in cashmere coats, hats, and gloves. Slip on a richly hued weightless cashmere sweater. Wrap yourself in your stunning ruana.  Comfort, warmth, durability, and fashionable style are yours in cashmere.

 

Know your cashmere

Can’t wear wool? Hate that itchy, scratchy feeling?  Good news – wear cashmere!  Cashmere isn’t from sheep; it’s the softest hair from goats, especially goats from cold climates like inner Mongolia.

Cashmere is categorized by Ply and Gauge.  Ply refers to the number of strands twisted together to make a particular yarn.  Cashmere garments are generally made with 2 ply 26’s metric size yarn.  In simple terms, that’s two strands of yarn knitted together. 3 ply or 4 ply garments would weigh more. Gauge refers to the number of stitches per inch and the number of rows per inch.
